Like many great ideas, Bank of Obama was conceived at a local pub.  We were debating the merits of the government bailout of banks and auto companies.  The only common ground we found was that we all had our own personal bailout needs.  And so did most of our other friends.  We thought sending bailout checks to friends would be a fun way to make light of the situation.  Since we all had prior experience building web apps it was a no brainer to build a site for the Bank of Obama.  We are an Austin, TX based crew.  Thanks for visiting the site.  Now go bailout some friends!


Brian has an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

He needs a bailout for student loans.

Bill holds an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.

He could use a bailout for business start up expenses and to pay for his recent wedding.


Brandon is a technical genius from Texas Tech University.

He needs a bailout so he can finally afford to go on a much needed vacation.
